High Ongar Primary School, Essex, CM5 9NB

Headteacher/Head of School

Required: Easter or September 2019

Leadership Scale : L7 - 11

Are you the talented individual we are looking for who shares our passion for education and wants to make a real difference in the wider community? High Ongar Primary School is looking for a Headteacher/Head of School who knows what outstanding provision and academic progress looks like within our small community setting and beyond. We want a collaborator, who not only will work closely with the local stakeholders, but has a genuine desire to work openly and collectively with the other Ongar Primary and Secondary schools, who are also part of Bridge Academy Trust.

With a clear strategic vision, you will navigate the changing educational landscape in partnership with the CEO, Director of Primary Education & Executive Headteacher, the Local Governing Body and the Trustees. We are building leadership structures for the future, and this is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Deputy Headteacher to take up their first headship role, or for an existing Headteacher looking to work collaboratively in a forward-thinking, community-based trust.

We encourage you to contact our CEO, Mark Farmer or Director of Primary education, Cheryl Allard, for further information and/or to arrange a visit to the school on farmerm@bridgeacademytrust.org

Please enclose a letter to support your application that highlights your suitability and preparation for this position and your personal educational philosophy and vision.
